They share only paint shop.
Thats very interesting, I'd assumed they may have found a way of doing at least trim & final together.
The flow I'd asusmed from past jobs was:
Separate body shops for Giorgio and Compact
Separate early assembly (body & powertrain stuff-up etc)
Shared Trim & Final
Shared validation and shipping/logistics zone
Then again a past employer tried mixing transverse and longitudinal architecture builds this way...we could never make it work...but they also had the complication of one architecture being steel and the other aluminium.
Fiat paid very few of that layoffs, most is from taxpayer and the other companies that didn't used the "cassa integrazione ordinaria" or "cassa integrazione ordinaria".
The whole system was changed in 2015 to penalize, a little bit, the ones that were using too much.
For the company the contribution (on 80% of the salary) was 8% for "cassa integrazione ordinaria" and 4.5% for "cassa integrazione staordinaria".
Every company, for the sectors that can use that instrument and having more than 15 employees, pays annualy a contribution to the fund that is calculated as percentage on annual total salaries (2.2%).
With 2015 reform they changed the values: company annual contribution on total salaries decreased to 2%, while the share when they use the instrument of "cassa integrazione guadagni" increased to 9% (on all salary, not on 80% as before) and 12% if they use for more than 52 weeks.
The rules are more complex as well as calculation, but that us the base.
FCA used and uses frequently the "cassa integrazione guadagni ordinaria", the cost for them is low and they have same workers that already know their job and duties in the plant.
Cassino has also a press shop with cold and hot presses. They produce parts also for other plants.
Plastic shop was added some years ago, maybe 2014.
Also Melfi has two lines.
One is for Fiat Punto, should be free when Punto will stop production.
Are already some years that on media is announced the end of production, but this time it looks like is very near. Trim levels, variants, already were reduced heavily one year ago.
